Title : Americae Sive Novi Orbis, Nova Descriptio..
Map maker : ORTELIUS, A..
Date : Anvers, 1588.
Size : 13.8 x 18.9 inches. / 35.0 x 48.0 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :Third plate, state 1. In 1587, a new plate was engraved which appeared in editions from 1588 onwards. Of the three maps, this one is perhaps the most important. Geographically, it is the most advanced one, with the bulge in Chile removed, the Salomon Islands inserted and additional names, including C. Mendocino, added to the north west coast. Furthermore, this is the only one of the three plates which is signed by Ortelius as responsible for the preparation of the map. Verso blank. Neither Burden nor V. d. Broecke refer to copies without text , but "not all mapsheets have text on the back. Some 5% of the mapsheets were sold separately, or bound in composite, makeshift atlases, but the bulk of loose maps found are from regular atlases, and therfore contain texts." (V. d. Broecke).
- Burden, North America, 64.
Condition : Verso blank. Paper slightly age-toned as usual, repair of split upper part left 5 mm into engraved area. Good and dark impression. In mint condition.


ID: 61751
